Subject Ideas on a rc.d kind of directory
Date Fri, 13 Jul 2007 23:04:17 GMT

As we move forward and we integrate with more and more 3rd party
products, we will need the ability to be able to change an environment
variable through a plugin, or add a commandline JAVA_OPTS, etc.

Currently our startup scripts call the to set environment
properties.  It would really be nice to have the ability to have a
"scripts" directory, where all of the scripts get executed before
Geronimo is launched.  Why do we want this?

As we grow in our plugins, they will need to set environment or java
options set before running G.  They may also have a need to start or run
other outside processes  that are not a part of G.

It would be great to allow plugins to install an rc script that gets
executed to do activities before and perhaps after G is run?

I would propose we create a scripts directory under bin or under var
that could be similar to init.d, and have it called with start/stop,
etc.  This way plugins can install specific scripts in these directories
for execution.
